My Apple Watch (series 3) has begun counting huge amounts of steps, even in my sleep and when I’m at my desk at work. It did this to me once before and I totally wiped it and re-calibrated it but now it has started again. Any ideas? Thanks!
Apple Watch Counting Steps When Asleep
Are you using a pedometer app other than the Apple Activity app? The Pedometer++ app is notorious for extra steps…I’m quite certain I could find out where the extra steps are at.
Open up Apple health, find “steps” and click it. Roll to the bottom and choose “show all data”. Now choose a day where you have had issues. Open that day up and look on the left. It will show your watch or your phone OR any app that is adding steps. Let me know what you see.
Have you reset the watch? Maybe that would fix this issue.
Apple Watch Showing Incorrect Steps in Health App
How often does the Apple Watch sync the data with the iPhone? I walked on treadmill today without phone. The watch recorded my steps, which were around 2,000. I checked the health app on iPhone after 2-3 hours and still it was not showing today’s steps. Is there any manual sync we need to do or it syncs automatically? If yes how often?
